Accidents might happen anytime and data might get lost or deleted not just on a computer, but on any other device. Fortunately, there are specific recovery software solutions that can be used for retrieving files and, while most target Windows computers, there are others that are dedicated to other types of storage devices. For instance, in case you lost camera recordings from a closed-circuit television set, then myCCTV Recovery might help you retrieve them without too much hassle.
Adopting a wizard-based approach, myCCTV Recovery enables you to go through the data recovery process step by step. It detects external, internal, logical or disk images that are available and enables you to choose the ones to scan. You must then select the partitions to analyze for recoverable files.
There are a few filters you can apply to narrow down the search for specific camera recordings to recover. To be more specific, you are free to specify the date and time range to limit your search or enter the camera numbers that will be used as a search criterion. Leaving the filter fields blank is also an option.
During the analysis, you get to see the application’s progress and the elapsed time. Once the scan is completed, myCCTV Recovery proceeds to carefully classify the files and folders it finds, all to keep everything in a strict order. Files are categorized by the camera number, the year, month and day they were recorded.
The recovered files are displayed within the main window and previewed in thumbnail mode. When selecting a file, its properties are revealed. As such, you can view the file name and size, the time of the recording, the duration and the camera number. With the click of a button, you can recover the selected data.
If you find yourself in a situation when camera recordings are lost on your CCTV appliance, then surely myCCTV Recovery is a solution worth trying. It is easy to use and provides support for some of the most important CCTV device manufacturers.
